As we enter the holiday seasons, one of the most important and sentimental holidays for me is Thanksgiving. Just a few days away, it’s the one holiday that revolves around food, family and friends. It’s also a stress free occasion to cherish with those you truly appreciate – unless you’re the one cooking – and it’s also a time where you express sentiment to those who hold you down. In addition, it’s a holiday where we express gratitude; compassion and support to those you call family and with that said, I’d like to thank my Skin Design family. Through the thick and thin they’ve stuck by my side to create what we have today and for that I’m thankful and forever indebted. In addition, I would also like to take the time to thank all those who believed in me for the past two decades. Without clients believing in my work (and even the naysayers who doubted – and motivated me), I would not be where I am today.
In addition, I have to thank the founding forefathers of the game as well as artists both past, present and future. As a family of artisans we’ve all helped create an industry that we enjoy today and together we can keep this industry as one that was built, maintained and regulated by us. I say this because we’re at a critical moment in growth and its up to us to make sure that we hold tattooing up to the highest standards possible.
That said, I’m proud to release a newly revamped website which gives back to this amazing community. The new Skin Design Tattoo site still contains all the basic essentials but the one part that I’m most proud of is our decision to run content, which will be updated daily. From artist interviews, news and industry products, the team at Skin Design will be chronicling our industry from a global vantage and in the end our ultimate goal is to create a hub which will capture, educate and entertain the truly evolutionary spirit of tattoos.
Updates on the site will begin to launch next week so check back with us and enjoy this holiday with your loved ones!
